The only problem with this kind of accumulation is that my snow blower is the prissiest piece of equipment I own. I have a no name no frills lawn mower that I can beat up, never tune up, leave in the rain, and fill with sand and it will always run. Meanwhile my snow blower only starts once every 3 years and never the days I need it to.
Update: It turns out this malfunction was my fault. When I mixed the oil with the gas I forgot to shake the can. Oops. So I dumped that tank out, shook the can, refilled the tank and BAM! we have a working snow blower. I ran it for a while just to make sure and then came inside to eat dinner and update my curious social media fans. I won’t be entirely surprised though when I go back out to actually use the things that it fails on me again.
